A subdomain is the section of the web address which is before a domain and you've quite possibly seen a lot of subdomains while surfing around world wide web. As an illustration, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org etc. The best thing about using a subdomain is that it can have a separate website and its own records, so you're able to even host it on a separate server. The practical use is that you could have a supplementary website, such as an e-learning portal for college students on top of the primary school site. If you use subdomains instead of subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific site, not mentioning that it'll be more safe to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Website Hosting
Every website hosting plan that we offer will permit you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a couple of clicks within your web hosting Control Panel. They're going to be listed in the area where you create them and grouped under the main domain for more convenience, so that you can easily monitor every one of them. Furthermore, you can access lots of functions for any of the subdomains via right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and much more. While setting up a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can pick from - specify the default access folder, create custom error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or pick if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you'll have is entirely up to you since we haven't restricted this feature for any one of our plans.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can create as many subdomains as you want with any one of our semi-dedicated hosting since we haven't set a maximum limit for this feature. The Hepsia hosting CP will allow you to add a new subdomain with a few clicks and you are going to be able to access a number of advanced features during the process - replace the default access folder, pick the IP address the subdomain will use from the shared and dedicated ones that are provided in your account, activate FrontPage Extensions, add an SSL certificate, and more. Even if you create a huge amount of subdomains, you'll be able to keep track of all of them with ease because they are going to be listed in alphabetical order under their main domain. For every single one of them, you can even access the site files or view logs and usage statistics using quick access buttons.
